  • School Profile

    School Profile

    Parkview School is located in central West Edmonton. We have a student population of approximately 590 students from Kindergarten to Grade 9 and we offer a variety of programs to meet the needs of a range of students.

    The elementary community draws directly from the Parkview neighbourhood.  In Junior High, less than 30% of the student population originates in the immediate neighborhood. The rest of the designated junior high area is from West Edmonton areas including Lymburn, Aldergrove, Thorncliffe, James Gibbons and Lynnwood School. In addition, our Chinese (Mandarin) Program draws students from the Bilingual programs at Meadowlark and Dovercourt, while our Interactions program serves students in transportation zone 4.

Principal's Message

 

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Parkview School!

Although it may be a unique year in unprecedented times, Parkview continues to be an inviting and inclusive school community where diversity is celebrated and valued, and where relationships are nurtured. Emphasis is placed on creating an environment where students feel capable and connected and develop the skills required to be contributing members both in our school and in the broader community.

At Parkview School we believe that educating our students is a collective responsibility, shared by students and their families, school staff and also the entire community. Through a collaborative approach in working together with you as partners, we will maximize the potential of all students. We are committed to providing a positive learning environment that will foster and support high academic and behavioral expectations, capitalizing on the value of strong working relationships.

In an effort to ensure all students are successful, faculty will use a differentiated approach to teaching. This approach includes thoughtful planning, strategic assessment of learning outcomes, and targeted, flexible instruction. Classroom teaching will be a blend of whole class, group, partner, and individual instruction. Students will be provided with multiple opportunities to make sense of ideas and information, practice new skills, and to demonstrate what they have learned.

Communication is key at Parkview School and is a shared responsibility.  Updates and information will be communicated mainly through the use of Schoolzone and students, parents and guardians are asked to check Schoolzone regularly. Also, feel free to drop by the school office and introduce yourself, share your feedback or concerns and ask any questions. Your questions, concerns, observations and feedback are welcomed and embraced so please connect with us by phone, email or in person at any time.

I look forward to an amazing year with our students, families and the entire Parkview Community!  

 

Joanne Aldridge
